Indian PM pledges to settle Gujarat desalination project issues

India’s prime minister Narendra Modi has pledged, during a current visit to Japan, to resolve outstanding issues with a 336Ml/d seawater desalination project underway in South Gujarat and led by a Singaporean and Japanese consortium.

The issues to be settled included tariff-related matters, water quality parameters, and water sales. Modi’s assurances came ahead of talks during a visit to Japan to discuss a number of major infrastructure projects with Japanese interests.

A consortium of Japan’s Hitachi and Singapore-based water technology company Hyflux is building the South Gujarat desalination plant at a site in a special economic zone in Dahej. The plant is to supply water to industry between Delhi and Mumbai for 30 years.
